W P Drevers

Picture of W P Drevers shop as requested a few weeks ago. Still known as W P Drevers by the older generation and called the Lifeboat House by the not quite so old generation as the lifeboat equipment was stored down stairs and the mechanic lived upstairs. Could now do with some T.L.C

Not sure if you are referring to my request, but thanks anyway if it was. I see the side stairs are gone, and the 1st floor side door blocked up. I remember being inside when on holiday in the 1970s ... worn floorboards 'ahint the coonter' pointed out by my Grandma, WP's daugher Lillah. Thanks for posting the photo.
